Flamboyant


Autumn Colors in Duke Gardens

Speak,

Act,

Write,

like it was your last

pithy

driven

edgy poem.

 

Have them hanging

there…mid-sentence

spell-bound

salivating

for that morsel

that one

thought

that single

tiny nugget

that is pure gold.

 

And command

their silence.

 

Make them stand at attention

click their heels

salute

proving yet again

that you are much more

than sexy sizzling hot

much more

than a High School diploma

and a middle-aged grandmother. Much more than a

bank of knowledge

to borrow or

withdraw from.

 

DAZZLE them

and then…

WALK AWAY

disappear

into the horizon

make them think it was a dream

like a brilliant autumn leaf carried away

by the breeze

colorful and rustling

sprawling splendidly

in the gifted forest

later

crunched

by a doe

in the dark.
